Weekend Nails:Rose Curlicue

 This is one of my most favorite flower design that i have ever made!

I spent a long time completing this design but it's so worth it because it's quite unique & looks so girly!

I used acrylic in this design. It's impossible to use polish to create intricate designs like this. Actually it's not really that hard to create this design. If you have a steady hand, you can do this too!

What's ironic about this is that i didn't use a nail art brush..i used my artist brush!

See the number of the brush?
It's 4/0... the tip of the bristle is very fine that it's possible to make very detailed line like this design.
Make sure you read the tip that i had at the bottom of the post if you are planning to do this design too.

Let's get on with the tutorial~!

1. Pick your base color... choose a light/pastel color to make your design truly pop!
I used The Face Shop's PK110 as my base. Sorry, i forgot to take a pic of it on my nail..hehe

 2. To make the rose design, lightly dip the tip of the brush on the red (crimson red) acrylic. Then make a small curved line like shown in the picture. You then, trace the red line using black acrylic to give it a well-defined look.

Here's a bigger & closer look so you'll see how the design of the rose is...

You don't need to be in a hurry. Patience & Steady hand is the key in making this nail art a success!

3. Using green (phtalocyanine green) acrylic, add some leaves if you want to. You also have to use black acrylic to define the shape of the leaves.

4. Last but not the least, using black acrylic, make some random curlicue design on the sides/top of the rose!

5. Apply top coat then sit back & admire your nail art!

You can just stick with one design if you want to. It's just that i prefer to have different designs on each nails just for it to look edgy! hahaha!

I love this design!
Too bad that my left hand can not make such detailed work like this so it's only my left nails that has this..LOL! In time, my left hand would be able to make detailed design too.. i just wonder when would that be?! hahaha!

Anyway, i hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Jaa ne~!

Nail art tips:
-If you are doing thin lines it's better to just dip the tip of your bristles on the acrylic, not dipping half of the whole bristle..just the tip!
-You can wet your acrylic with water if you find the consistency of it too thick for your liking. Adding water will make the acrylic thin so you'll be able to work with it easily.
-If you find your acrylic drying, just add a spritz of water on it. What's great about acrylic is that you can just wipe it away/rinse it with water if you made a mistake.

I cannot believe that you did this on your own! I thought you used stamps or stickers or something. WOW, so impressive!

And I know what you mean about doing only your left hand, LOL. I used to do that when my acrylics! hahaha. My left hand would be finished and not always my right. Lol, it took too long XD
